Bus Regular AC, DLTBCo (DLTBCo), Nov 16, 2019
Dltb should be the one printing the voucher not the customers. Not all of us have printer in our house, takes almost one hour to find nearest printing shop on cubao. Please do something about it. We pay the right amount of money and they tell that no print out of voucher you cannot take the ride. Make it hassle free for us
